SCHOOL GARDEN FUN AT CPS AND CES!


Last year was a busy year gardening at Commerce Primary and Elementary Schools! Our Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th grade classes planted, watered, weeded, and harvested many vegetables during the year. The students loved getting to watch the plants grow during the year! Most of them said their favorite part was getting to eat the veggies they grew. Almost all the students enjoyed trying everything we grew… even the raw onion! We are excited to start planting and growing more vegetables this fall.

What we grew this year:

  • Onions
  • Potatoes
  • Sweet peas
  • Broccoli
  • Kale
  • Lettuce
  • Carrots
  • Radishes
  • Turnips
